What time should I arrive?
Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your course, that’s 09:10-09:15, for a 09:30 start.

What should I wear?
It is crucial that soft shoes with a grip are worn, or you risk not being allowed into the Training Kitchen. Shoes with heals or office shoes are prohibited in the kitchen.
